Abstract:Elsewhere & Otherwise

Alan Prince

Rutgers University

These remarks address issues raised by Morris Halle in a letter to

Glot International. My aim is to situate the discussion in the context

of the theoretical competition between rule-package serialism (the

view that grammatical generalizations are packaged into re-write rules

which are serially ordered) and more recent approaches which factor

generalizations into interacting constraints. Although various

wide-of-the-mark objurgations are dismissed in the course of this

note, it proves to be at least as interesting to pursue the logic of

Halle's own position -- in particular some of the rather unexamined

complications involved in imposing an 'Elsewhere Condition' on

rule-package serialism.

This expands and reformats Glot International 2.6: 1,23-24.
